This webquest is to help fourth graders understand what life was like in colonial times.

Introduction

Imagine you just found an old newspaper in your grandmother's attic.  It is yellow with age, and the ink gets all over your fingers.  You look at the date and are surprised that it is from 1776.  Your eyes explore the paper and find information about the 13 original colonies.   Your job will be to make your own newspaper from that time!
